McrFRED 20 Lightning Talks

:zap::zap::zap: For Manchester FRED 20 let's mix things up a bit :zap::zap::zap:

The idea is to have a few people talking with a variety of topics, each talk should last no longer that 10 minutes. If you'd like to talk please read on and submit your topic.


The event will take place on Thursday 27th November, 6.30pm at SpaceportX on Lever Street.
